needy world

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  
– Howard Thurman

I am one of 7+ billion people on the planet at the moment. What I know is… that the planet is greatly in need of TLC. What I don’t know is… what the world needs of me. I truly have no idea. How could I? I’m one of 7+ billion.

Howard Thurman’s words reframe this sense of helplessness. His words provide a challenge. His words empower. Because, when it really comes down to it, I am the only one, the only one… the only one among the 7+ billion who knows what makes me come alive.

Same goes for you.
